Sketch-N-Scrap Reveal with Ruby Mae

Good morning all! Today’s Sketch-n-Scrap sketch is by the very talented Mandy Reedyk. I fell in LOVE with the sketch the moment I saw it! I mean, just take a look at it! Look at those fun circle pictures!

December 15th Layout

And here is my take on it:

Brandy Dec 15th Layout

I had a lot of fun with this sketch. The pictures are of my sweet girl, Ruby Mae, a couple of years ago. I decided to tilt it just give the layout more interest. I didn’t stitch my twine, I just used some strong glue to hold it down.

That quote is from a cut apart sheet from the Devoted line from Authentique. I fussy cut the paw print circle, and then added 3D adhesive to give it some dimension. The background pattern paper is also from Authentique.

The Woof! bubble is also fussy-cut from some pattern paper – from the older Woof! collection from Echo Park. The burlap pattern paper is from KaiserCraft, as well as the arrow sticker. The cork star is Freckled Fawn, and the 2 smaller veneer stars are Studio Calico, which I inked using Clearsnap cat eye ink.

That fun die cut title was a gift from my friend Sara M. She made die cuts for all my babies. The maroon pattern paper is by Karen Foster.

Hope you can stop by and play along with us over at Sketch-n-Scrap!

Moments using NAS #356

Nuts About Sketches newest layout is a two pager, and I used both sides this time to help me scrap one of my dearest friends’ 30th Surprise Birthday Party!

356 - Due 2-8-15

As you can see, I stuck with the sketch pretty well, including the 7X5 photo on the 1st page with the banner; but instead of 3 smaller photos on top right side – I just used 4 6X4’s.

I fussy cut the banner by using a sticker banner from Carta Bella, putting it on the orange side of Echo Park sticker paper, and then fussy cutting it and flipping it over so I can use the lighter blue side of the banner, to better suit my needs. Alphas are Echo Park too, with brads from WRMKs.

Tag is from my stash, and the cute arrow with the brad is also by Echo Park. Washi is Bella Blvd:

The Echo Park collection I used is “That’s My Boy” – leftovers from my step son’s album. But the sticker at the bottom – “Clearly up to No Good” just says it all! The orange chevron brad with the 2 smaller yellow ones are also Echo Park; with the veneer stars by Studio Calico.

Layout: Cousins

Its no lie – my family and I are very close, even us cousins! The pics were perfect with Sketch-N-Scrap sketch #60, along with a Holiday Challenge over at ACOT.

Here is my layout –

Cousins (2)

Here is the sketch the layout is based on:

Sketch #60

I stayed true to the sketch, just moving the title down. The sprinkling of stars and the one camera embellie was the perfect combination for this layout.

ACOT’s July Christmas/Holiday Challenge was to either scrap Christmas (which I am caught up with) or to scrap a July Holiday. The hostess gave us quite a list of Holidays to choose from. When I saw Cousins Day (July 24th) I knew it’d be perfect with those photos! We also had to use at least 3 stars (I think I qualify don’t you think? 😉 ) and stripes (pattern paper).

TFL! 🙂
